I love the random so love this idea.You mentions a couple of my toys/tools along side some others.
The Random Flickr blendr was originally thought of as a sort of contemplation toy, so I avoided making it easy to grab images. I guess I could make that easier now there seems to be a purpose. I think FlickrCC Stampr used to have a url parameter to kick off a search I’ll look at adding that back in at times.
Side note, I remember Ben Rimes Poetry for People blog. Now gone but discussed here: Come Write Poetry With Me This April! – The Tech Savvy Educator
Update, 1-April-19 : I’ve made a couple of changes that might be useful:
http://johnjohnston.info/fcc/?s=poem adding ?s=searchword will preload the flickr search
On Random Flickr Blendr I’ve added a pause button and move the links for better screenshotting. I changed the links to flickr shortlinks so they can be read from an image (Not very accessible!)
